Case – the movement comes in a gilt open face case, which is numbered 3455 inside the case. The case is decorated on the back with a raised enamel plaque decorated with an original enamel scene of a lady dressed in fine clothes with pearls, feathers and flowers in hair and in typical Louis XVI style dress. Surrounding the plaque is silver wire work set with old paste stones. Then on the back of the case are raised green gold coloured leaves and flowers. The case is then set with a large past stone for the push button and also paste stones around the bezel. All are present with none missing or replaced. The case is in 95% mint condition – tiny mark on the enamel and some metal coming through the gilding on the stem – overall in superb condition for a delicate watch of this period
Dial – the white enamel dial is set with paste set gilt hands. The dial signed “Gilbert a Paris” and is in 95% mint condition – small marks around the edge only The watch has a domed mineral glass
